The report, Automotive HVAC System Market in The Americas 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increased use of compact variable compressors. There has been an increased use of compact variable compressors due to their benefits over conventional compressors to enhance the performance of the HVAC system as it is an essential component of the HVAC system. The contemporary compact variable compressors are based on the variable displacement piston compressor technology. Such compressors are adaptable to both electronic and pneumatic controls.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing adoption of automatic climate control systems is pushing the demand for HVAC systems. The growing adoption of automatic climate control is pushing the demand for HVAC systems. Automatic climate control is mostly present in luxury cars and the top variants of the mass-selling cars in the Americas. The penetration of automatic climate control is almost negligible in the lower variants.
Automatic HVAC systems consist of a microprocessor unit that maintains the set temperature within the vehicle cabin with no other input required from the driver. Automatic HVAC systems are complicated because they control both heating and cooling with a single temperature setting. They are more sophisticated than their manual counterparts and reduce the energy consumption.
